J.F. Dulles Elementary School

Jump Rope for Heart

Jump Rope for Heart is an event conducted nationwide to educate students about the benefits of aerobic exercise and heart health while raising funds to support the American Heart Association’s fight against heart disease and stroke. At Dulles, all 4th and 5th grade students collect money from family and neighbors to be donated to the AHA. On the day of their event, money is collected, and the students jump rope various ways to music. (double dutch, partner jumping, single rope jumping, etc.) as treats are given. According to the amount of money collected, students receive prizes from the AHA and our school qualifies for money for sport equipment and a chance to have the Ropin’ Rockets Demo team perform at a school assembly free of charge. Top collectors also help on the school’s Track Days in May. If you have any more questions please email Mrs. Cohill at [email protected]
